United Nations: Forming a One-World Government?
A number of UN initiatives suggest that the international body views itself as the foundation of a one-world government for the planet. America is gradually increasing its involvement in these initiatives.
One example of this is the shocking testimony yesterday (March 7, 2012) by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta at a Senate Armed Services Committee congressional hearing during which it was confirmed that the U.S. government is now completely beholden to international power structures and that the legislative branch is a worthless relic.
Paul Watson reported in a PrisonPlanet blog:
During the hearing yesterday Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey brazenly admitted that their authority comes not from the U.S. Constitution, but that the United States is subservient to and takes its marching orders from the United Nations and NATO, international bodies over which the American people have no democratic influence.
Panetta was asked by Senator Jeff Sessions, “We spend our time worrying about the U.N., the Arab League, NATO and too little time, in my opinion, worrying about the elected representatives of the United States. As you go forward, will you consult with the United States Congress?”
The Defense Secretary responded “You know, our goal would be to seek international permission. And we would come to the Congress and inform you and determine how best to approach this, whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress.”
President Barack Obama had based part of his election platform on seeking world consensus before engaging in armed conflict. It seems few believed that he was genuinely intending to expose United States interests to the whims of the remainder of the world, many of whom are vehemently opposed to our democratic methods and formerly-successful economy.
Just as Hitler bamboozled the nation of Germany between the First and Second World Wars, so Obama has blinded our nation to his intention to push us into the realization of a new socialist state governed by himself as the sole arbiter of what’s right and the bypassing of Congress with its subsequent destruction of our Constitutional system of checks and balances. Obama said he would do this, but few believed him.

The Independent Sentinel reported in April this year that:
Under our Constitution, international treaties must be approved by a 2/3rds vote of the Senate, but there is reason to believe that Obama plans to implement the Law of the Sea Treaty or LOST via Executive Order, flouting the Constitution. This information was buried in a White House report. . . . On the White House blog in March, President Obama stated “that the United States will promote the stewardship and sustainable use of the oceans in several ways including by cooperating and exercising leadership at the international level and pursuing U.S. accession to the Law of the Sea Convention.”
Our President is on the verge of enforcing a treaty that cedes the sovereignty of our oceans to the U.N. courts over which we have no influence. We will also be required to pay one-half of all royalties from off-shore oil drilling to this Marxist international body (the U.N. or its appointed Council). It will be a win-win in Obama’s war on oil. Furthermore, we as a “rich” nation must give away all our proprietary technology about off-shore drilling. The international body will also decide where we can drill. It’s insane!
The Law of the Sea Convention or Law of the Sea Treaty (UNCLOS or LOST) establishes a legal regime for navigation and international management of oceanic resources, including the deep seabed.
This will do nothing for us but put us under the jurisdiction of another bureaucracy and one which is governed by Marxist philosophy. If LOST passes, we can suffer under world bureaucracies as they steal our resources. They believe our wealth belongs to the world in accordance with Marxist philosophy. . . . The LOST is so wrong for so many reasons…
LOST operates under the assumption that any minerals in the ocean floor constitute the “common heritage” of all mankind — and therefore cannot be the property of any one individual, company, or nation.
This treaty is an affront to American national sovereignty. It would give the United Nations authority over much of the world’s oceans, including the power to regulate and tax deep-sea mining, and redistribute the proceeds to Third World governments.
See the UN Commission on the Rights of the Child for more information on a UN initiative which would disarm the world. Historically, disarming populations has resulted in enabling dictators to rule over and control their people to the detriment of the people.
